XPSP one and two...

  t.long 21:30 27 Sep 04

I formatted my machine and stuck service pack 2 on. I thought, it would cointain all the SP 1 parts too. However some websites do not display pictures, which I recall is a pre SP 1 issue. So I tried insalling SP1 but it will not install over SP2.

So does SP2 cointain everything SP1 does? Is there anyway of installing SP1 over SP2? Or should I reinstall XP and try again, with SP1 then 2?

no chance mate...reinstall XP with SP1 and then install SP2...cant be done other way around...

by the way how did you manage to get SP2 on before SP1? its meant to put SP1 when XP is first installed on a PC...

I did an install of SP2 direct to first version of XP [Pre SP1] this morning without any problem, and confirm that SP2 will bring XP bang up to date. j.
